It’s the little things that matter.
We all have hundreds of friends on social media these days … maybe even thousands. It’s so common, in fact, that it seems too obvious to even point out. Your mom has a thousand followers on Twitter. Your grandfather comments on your Facebook pics and tends to share inappropriate gifs.
These days, maintaining important relationships online seems totally normal.
But, family aside, how many of those hundreds of friends do you REALLY count as important in your life?
We’ve got these devices — our smart phones and laptops and tablets — that are supposed to make us feel more connected to each other. And sometimes they do. Sometimes the connections we make with technology can be life-saving.
But sometimes life on the other side of a screen can feel incredibly isolating.
Because we need more.
